    I'm not sure why but Nancy Pelosi has had a very tough time during her recent speaking engagements.

    In the latest one, she referred to governor Kasich of Illinois and talked about Martin Luther Sing. There were other glaring speaking mistakes listed in the article and I'm wondering if she is having health issues, opponents are just paying more attention to her speeches, or there are issues with the teleprompter.

    I guess now that HRC is out out of the scene, you need to find the next next person to slap this label on.

    This is the National Enquirer side of PRSI ... Are These Nancy Pelosi's Final Days!? :eek:

    Personally, I think Jan Brewer is a better choice. She looks closer to death, and has had worse public speaking issues. Or there's Rick Perry, who couldn't remember the name of the department he now heads. Or Gary Johnson, who couldn't answer what Aleppo was.

    I never saw these stories about her till recently. If you read the article, you will see that she has been having difficulties recently.

    Is it your contention that this is just fabricated news to bring her down ?

    What has she actually accomplished during her time in Congress?

    No idea. But are you sharing the same concern over Trump and his administration for their health (mental and physical) issues? Or just the Dems. Asking for a friend.

    Is it breaking news that as people age they have more difficulty performing as they once did?

    I'm just discussing a story I read. Post a similar story on Trump and his administration and I'll comment on it after reading the article.

    Do you think this is this just fabricated news to hurt Nancy Pelosi ?

    Not at all. I just think it's strange that her public speaking problems seemed to start this year.

    I think this applies to most of the people in Congress :).

    It could be anything.

    1. Plain old senior moments.
    2. Beginning of a serious illness.
    3. No big deal, she repeated words. Trump does that all the time. A lot of people do.
    4. Brain farts.

    Isn't she using a teleprompter and why is this only reported starting this year ?

    She's probably using a teleprompter. And the only two reasons I could thing of to answer why is this only being reported this year: 1. Its something new. 2. Someone has an agenda that they didn't have last year.

    Well she's been in Congress for 29 years, so she's put herself in a position where no one actually expects results, so she has that going for her.

    She's old, so it's not surprising. she probably should be out of there before she gets dementia.

    I really think there should be an age limit.

    Trump just finished his CPAC speech. "We will make the tax code much more fair for the people and the business."
